I don't really post what I'm up to in life on here, or really anywhere, so idk, figured I'd make a journal for anyone wondering.

At the beginning of the year I began dating the guy I'm currently with, Uriah. We met at PetSmart when I started working there last year. We didn't start dating till like 8 months after that. He's pretty rad.

I began working as a dog groomer this year. I absolutely love my job. I get to hang out with dogs 8+ hours a day, the money is decent, and its something new everyday.

I also finally got a vehicle. It's a 2011 Ford F150. Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely adore my truck with all my heart. He's giant and blue, and I feel powerful lmao. He also is a gas guzzler and I put around $80 of gas in him per week and I'm dying squirtle.

In the beginning of March I went and saw Against Me! and Greenday in concert. I had pit tickets and was extremely close to the stage. It was an awesome experience! I did however get punched in the face by a mosh pit guy. Which made the whole thing even better cause what a great story haha. I also later got punched REALLY hard in the spine by a guy going around punching people at random trying to start fights, within a few minutes security tackled him and dragged him away. That was fun to see.

March 23rd I had double incision top surgery under Dr. Garramone. I flew my mother and I out to Florida for a week to have this done. Two thousand dollars came out of my pocket, and eight thousand more I took out a loan through my credit union. I have paid off over a thousand of it so far, and will continue to pay it off slowly through the next few years. I owe very little each month, and will only end up paying about $300 in interest. Making this the smartest, and cheapest way for me to have gone about getting the surgery I needed. I can now say that I am a very happy person. I have wanted this surgery for around 12 years now, and worked hard to get myself to a point where I could financially have it done.

In July I made a road trip to California with Uriah for a few days. It was a lot of fun! We got very fucked up and ended up spending a stupid amount of money on a banana split. Which I still think back on. It was a good banana split, but my god it was so much money. No sober person would have bought a banana split for so much money.....

In August I took Uriah on a road trip to Las Vegas, Nevada to see Lady Gaga in concert. I got us 'pit tickets' and we were extremely close to the stage. This was an amazing experience. Lady Gaga is a huge inspiration to Uriah and his absolute favorite artist, so it was really amazing that I got to take part in making a dream come true for him.

That's about it as far as big life things go. Gotten 3 new tattoos this years, had a lot of 'firsts', had some pretty damn lows, but some really great highs. I can actually say for the first time in my life, I feel happy. I feel healthy. I like my life.

Hey there, Long time stalker watcher here (like, almost back to the first Blue character old), first time commenter. I've kinda been on and off here glancing at your art, and may I say you've improved a fuckton, and sometimes would read up on your journals. Its been a long time since I've read something of yours.

To get to the point, I noticed you're a Transman Like myself. I'm about to go into transition and I have a question about top surgery?
What was it like for you? If thats not to personal, its cool if you don't wish to share. I've heard some stories of guys getting bad infections after or it being very painful, I mean i'd still do it but its something i'm curious about.

Regardless I'm happy to see you doing well!

Good to hear that things are going well for you!! :D

Also, I'm curious: Do you need special training to become a dog groomer? Like, is there a course or school that you have to go through, or are you taught as you go? I ask because there's a dog grooming place in my town that I'm considering asking for a job, but I'm just not sure what kind of experience you need.

AW fuck yeah I learned to drive in an F250 and it was the best car I've ever had (but it was exactly 7' tall and most seattle parking garages are 7'5" so that was terrifying)

oh my GOD DUDE FOR REAL lmao. the low parking garages are terrifying and I scream constantly while in them lmao. I know nothing it gonna hit me, but god it's scary. And my truck isn't even 7 feet tall. I can't imagine the terror if it was another half foot tall lmao
